Summer, boys, and friendships gone sour. This new series has everything that perfect beach reads are made of!

Gemma just got dumped and is devastated. She finds herself back in the Hamptons for the summer—which puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friend that she wronged five years earlier. Do people hold grudges that long?

When a small case of mistaken identity causes everyone, including Hallie and her dreamy brother Josh, to think she’s someone else, Gemma decides to go along with it.

Gemma’s plan is working (she’s finding it hard to resist Josh), but she’s finding herself in embarrassing situations (how could a bathing suit fall apart like that!?). Is it coincidence or is someone trying to expose her true identity? And how will Josh react if he finds out who she is?

Katie Finn hits all the right notes in this perfect beginning to a new summer series: A Broken Hearts & Revenge novel.

Apparently this year I am right on board with the YA contemporary train. And I’m always such a sucker for hilarious shenanigans, and this one definitely sounds like it’ll be full of it! Yay for cute summer reads!

  7. Choo Choo! (Sorry), but I’m right on board right now, too. I think my wish list and TBR pile is full of YA contemps than anything else. And this time last year I wouldn’t really go near them. Also, did that hat look like candyfloss to you at first? :S
